I understand that, but G.O.B., B.T.B. doesnt. Then they wonder why visitors are choosing other destinations ?

When asked about that earlier this week at a SPCC meeting, a well-known PUP leader gave this answer:

Question: My son bought a ticket to Belize for $279 but the taxes and fees added on to the ticket by Belize doubled the cost. What should Belize do to lower taxes on travel?

Mr. Briceno: Taxes make up 70% of the revenue of Belize. The tax
structure must be looked at. Most of the taxes are consumption tax and business taxes. A small number of businesses are paying most of the taxes. There needs to be a broader base, the system needs to be computerized and all taxes need to be collected. This would result in more revenue and there could be a reduction in taxes.


What was the question again???

Plus you have to listen to ONLY a 1 hour time share pitch that turns into 4 HOURS! No matter how many times you say NO, NO, NO!

Other than that, taxes + no substity = $756 from Phoenix to Belize for Feb trip!!! sick

Just found a CO Feb r/t for $715 all in that not only avoids IAH but eliminates one connection each direction. Almost seems cheap - in the same way that $2.65 gasoline does..........

at rates like they are now unfortunately rather than being unBelizable, it will become UN-Belize frown Unfortunately I don't think I can afford Belize at these rates cry I heart Belize and the people I have met there. Hope things change soon - June would be good grin
